On June 12, we organized a scientific seminar on “Quadcopter Modelling and Further Research“. Nora Lindner, a PhD student at Ruhr University Bochum, Germany, led the seminar, which was organized in the framework of the FrontSeat project as part of the seminar series on “Research Seminar on Smart Cybernetics.”

This presentation introduces a nonlinear state-space model for quadcopters and explores several prospects for future research. We begin with a short introduction of the flight-laboratory and the multicopter setup at RUB, followed by the detailed modelling of quadcopter dynamics. This encompasses both the rotational and translational dynamics and is illustrated through the derivation of a nonlinear state-space representation of the quadcopter. The subsequent simulation results validate the model by demonstrating its physically plausible behaviour. Looking ahead, we discuss several prospects for future research. This includes examining how battery voltage fluctuations affect quadcopter dynamics, estimation of model parameters, and implementation of theoretical advancements into practical flight control systems.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon under grant no. 101079342 (Fostering Opportunities Towards Slovak Excellence in Advanced Control for Smart Industries).
